How to Use This Resource
Writers learn the most about writing when they share and reflect on their writing. This is most commonly done through writing conferences as part of the revision stage.
Print a page for each student in your guided reading groups and keep them in your guided writing binder. Prior to meeting with your students, quickly read their writing and mark what they have done well as well as jotting down some of their strengths and weaknesses on the form.
Then, sit with each student in a conference and pull out the form. Tell them what they have done well and should continue doing in their writing. Then, choose a goal or strategy to quickly teach the student that they can incorporate into their writing.
Store all of your students’ conference forms in your guided reading binder to use for progress monitoring and data points.
